      Huckabee: Impeach judge in gay marriage case

      LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says lawmakers in his home state should impeach a judge who struck down the state's gay marriage ban, saying the judge ignored the will of voters.

      In a blog post on his political action committee website, Huckabee on Sunday criticized Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza for finding unconstitutional a 2004 amendment and 1997 state law banning same-sex marriage. Huckabee wrote that the governor should call a special session to impeach Piazza. A spokesman for the PAC confirmed that Huckabee wrote the post.

      Huckabee wrote that if Arkansans want to legalize gay marriage, they should put it on the ballot and vote for it.

      Huckabee ran unsuccessfully for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination and is mulling another White House run. He now lives in Florida.
